Founded in 1992 by Restaurateur Scott Harris, Francesca’s Restaurants Group has grown from a small, welcoming Italian restaurant on Chicago’s North Clark Street to a restaurant group of five concepts across 25 locations and three states.
Based in Chicago, Francesca’s Restaurant Group currently owns and operates 18 Francesca’s Restaurants, 4 Davanti Enotecas, Disotto, Fat Rosie’s Taco & Tequila Bar, and Hillgrove Tap. Francesca’s Restaurants offer handwritten menus of classic Italian favorites in an ambiance of sophisticated comfort. Davanti Enoteca is a neighborhood wine bar and restaurant with sharable contemporary twists on rustic Italian cuisine. Across all concepts, the multi-unit restaurant group maintains its commitment to the original restaurant’s founding philosophy of Italian hospitality—where simple food with quality ingredients and thoughtful service make a meal.Our Affiliates.
